Has anyone experience the same? I've also tried changing the button order in the Navigation bar Setting, and even trying the Full screen gestures but no luck. BTW, the Full screen gesture navigation doesn't work at all - recent, back, or even home function. I don't want to do a hard reset on my phone due to my settings and data. I tried restarting the phone and no luck on that too.
If was my phone I'd try....
Put the phone in Safe Mode which disables any downloaded apps and leaves the stock ones working and then see what happens. If the issue stops then one or more of your apps are causing conflict.
If it still does not work then turn the phone off and then from a set series of button presses go into the phones system files and clear the cache. No info is lost this way.
If still no joy then I appreciate your hesitant to not perform a factory reset but as backs ups are very good nowadays performing a Factory reset is pretty straightforward nowadays with little or no info being lost.
A final option is to use a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre.
I wish you all the best with this situation.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "
When I change to the Full Screen Gestures option. The lower right and lower left both create a minimize action.
i.e. When inside an app and I want to go back, I should be able to slide lower right upward...
This doesn't work. It simply minimizes the app. Same for the lower left.
I have the Galaxy S9 plus but most are pretty much the same fyi
OK this website won't let me edit my reply. But I've figured it out!! Here's how...
Pull down the top
Hit the GEAR
Tap on DISPLAY
"Choose Dark mode to be a Boss"
Choose Navigation bar
Choose Full Screen Gestures
Choose MORE OPTIONS
Choose the top option of Swipe from bottom
Now slide upward on lower right of screen to go back.
